Our strategy

Support resilience to shocks and transition to recovery for vulnerable communities.

The context

Zimbabwe struggles with severe unemployment, diminishing access to health and education services and a steady decline in purchasing power. Once the breadbasket of southern Africa, it is now food-insecure and lacks the critical infrastructure and support mechanisms needed to help its most vulnerable citizens.

Our work

  • Agriculture & Food: Reducing dependence on food aid by providing training, lowering barriers to credit, and subsidizing seed and fertilizer
  • Children & Youth: Facilitating support to children with disabilities
  • Innovations: Using mobile technology to provide farmers with crop data and banking services
  • Water: Improving drinking-water quality and increasing household access to safe water and sanitation
